Surrey Global Health Research Network (SGHRN)

About us

Surrey Global Health Research Network (SGHRN) was formed to establish a network of researchers and collaborators from the UK and priority areas around the world so that the partner overseas institutions and Surrey Health Economics Centre (SHEC) could support global health research initiatives and healthcare challenges.

The network will therefore help researchers take advantage of the increasing funding opportunities following UK Government’s comprehensive review in 2015 which has given focus to global health research.

The objectives of this network are to:

  • Facilitate bidding for UK global health research funding
  • Create a platform for resource sharing and knowledge transfer
  • Create training opportunities and exchange visits both in UK and developing countries.

The network is being coordinated by Surrey Health Economics Centre (SHEC). SHEC provides economics support to all forms of research in applied multidisciplinary research in health and social care, mainly in the UK and with partners from other European countries.
